Fox 5 Atlanta Adds to Local Political Show Lineup Ahead of 2020 Election

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Local Fox stations continue to develop new political shows leading up to the 2020 presidential election.

WAGA, the Fox station in Atlanta, Ga., is adding a new show called The Road to November starting Feb. 14.

“2020 is shaping up to be an unusual and consequential year in politics, both nationally and in the state of Georgia. In today’s highly political atmosphere, it makes sense for us to be the next market to join this important FTS initiative. This program will fulfill the crucial role of condensing the most critical stories of the perpetual political news cycle for our viewers,” said Fox 5 Atlanta president and general manger Bill Schneider.

The 6 and 10 p.m. anchor Russ Spencer will anchor the show. It will explore national, state and local politics.

This becomes the tenth political program produced locally by a FOX-owned station. It joins The Noon on WNYW in N.Y., The Issue Is on KTTV in L.A. and KTVU in San Francisco, Calif. Flannery Fired Up on WFLD in Chicago, Ill. The Final Five and On the Hill on WTTG in D.C., What’s Your Point on KRIV in Houston, Texas FOX 10 News Maker Saturday on KSAZ in Phoenix, Ariz. and Let It Rip on WJBK in Detroit, Mich.
